Premeditated Myrtle

Premeditated Myrtle

What does Myrtle mean? 

Myrtle means mystery. Myrtle means Young Lady of Quality. Myrtle means forensics. Myrtle means charm and snark. Myrtle means murder!

I’m talking about the Myrtle Hardcastle mystery series by Elizabeth C. Bunce. Book 1, PREMEDITATED MYRTLE, won the Edgar Award in the juvenile category, and praise abounds for the series, which also includes HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MYRTLE and COLD-BLOODED MYRTLE (which just came out last month!), as well as next year’s IN MYRTLE PERIL.

And now we are so pleased to announce that book 5 is scheduled as well! MYRTLE, MEANS, AND OPPORTUNITY will join its sisters on shelves in 2023, and we can’t wait!

Congratulations, Elizabeth!
